Rheumatoid Arthritis

I was diagnosed with RA, it was in remission for 6 years, from November last year I have all the symptoms, my GP agrees on RA. I' m testing negative, my GP keeps on giving me Cortisone, with only short term relieve, about 4 weeks, should I go back to my Rhumatologist?

Dear Sally
Yes - RA needs to be treated by a rheumatologist - one needs to prevent joint damage, not just manage pain.
